Learn the story behind JD Hockey.
From NE Mpls, Joe grew up playing for Edison Youth Hockey and graduated from Edison High School, winning the prestigious Mr Hockey award in 1990. He played for the Minnesota Gophers in the early 90's and played five years of pro hockey, mostly with the Pittsburgh Penguins. An eye injury cut short his playing career and was forced to retire in 2000.
Since his playing career ended, Joe has been involved with coaching and training college, high school and youth players full time. He spent 6 seasons coaching in the Upper Midwest High School Elite League. Joe has also coached a private high school team in St Paul and is the current head coach of Minneapolis High School team.
TRAIN WITH A PRO. While Joe has the playing experience that few hockey instructors can match - it is his attention to detail and repoire with players that separates him from other hockey instuctors. Joe's passion for the game and his enthusiasm to teach skills will challenge your player to reach their potential.
THE SEPARATION IS IN THE PREPARATION. Individual skills take a long time to master. Commiting the time to work on skills and improve playing habits is the secret to becoming an elite player. If excellence is your goal, than your preparation will separate you from the pack.
